But first, let me back up. I often make broccoli slaw. And we like it made with a mixture of thousand island and ranch salad dressings. Since my kids don't like to eat slaw but will sometimes eat broccoli slaw, I decided to try making cabbage slaw using my thousand island/ranch mix.
But alas, I had no thousand island. So of course, I hopped on the computer and went to Foodnetwork.com. I looked at several recipes and then went to work, winging it with what I thought would taste good.
WARNING. I often cook by just throwing things in without measuring. So this recipe will be the same. :)

Thousand Island Dressing
3/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup ketchup
about a tablespoon of sweet pickle relish
a dash of Worcestershire sauce
Put prepackaged cabbage and julienned carrots into a bowl.
Stir in about half of the Thousand Island dressing (add more to taste).
Stir in about the same amount of Ranch dressing.
Here's my finished product. If you think it looks a little bit pink...well, it is. I thought it was too sour and added a little raspberry-walnut vinaigrette since it's sweet. BIG MISTAKE. It was weird. Don't do it. Just add a little sugar to your thousand island dressing if you like sweeter slaw.
